D.C. Weighs Sales Tax on Medical Marijuana
June 2, 2010
Washington, D.C. officials estimated yesterday that extending the city’s 6% sales tax to medical marijuana could generate $400,000 over five years. Specifically, the office guessed that about 850 people would fill prescriptions at an average price of $350 apiece, for a tax of $21.
In November, Californians will vote on whether to legalize and tax marijuana.
